Cannot implicitly convert type 'string' to 'System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlInputText'

I am getting an error the message when I pass a variable from asp:hyperlink to a web page.

<input type="text" id="BusinessName" runat="server" />
<input type="text" id="Title" runat="server" />

        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            if (!IsPostBack)
                BusinessName.Value = Request.QueryString["ID"];

However, here is what i do not understand. On my Test.aspx Page if I only include this:
<input type="text" id="BusinessName" runat="server" /> and not the Title textbox, it works fine.

Try using a different ID for the Title textbox.  Title is commonly used as a property in the .NET framework; e.g. -
<input type="text" id="BusinessName" runat="server" />
<input type="text" id="BusinessTitle" runat="server" />

Open in new window

I should also point out that Title (as a property) is commonly a string type; e.g. -Capture.JPG
